A fourth book, The G8, The United Nations and Conflict Prevention, edited by John Kirton and Radoslava Stefanova, was in press. The Global Finance series saw the publication of its second book, Sustaining Global Growth and Development: G7 and IMF Governance, edited by Paolo Savona, Michele Fratianni and John Kirton.

G8 Governance: The G8 Governance online series continued to attract a wide readership and to solicit submissions.

G8 Information Centre: Between the conclusion of the 2002 Kananaskis Summit and the start of the 2003 Evian Summit, the G8 Information Centre website received 3.2 million hits, remaining consistent with the usage pattern of the previous year. The 2002/03 website usage culminated during the summit period, with 264,123 hits, 72,575 accesses, 45,463 visits and 28,595 unique hosts, showing a substantial increase in the last two categories. Over the year, the website launched sites in Spanish and Russian, published Data Sets and Fact Sheets, and expanded the photo collection. It also launched a section on Oral History.

G8 Research Collection: Under the direction of Peter Hajnal, the G7/G8 Research Collection housed in Trinity College’s Graham Library continued to expand. The detailed finding aid is being updated to incorporate the additions and corrections, so the research community can make full use of the materials. Documents from the 2003 Evian Summit have been added.

G8 Field and Home Teams: The 22-member field team at Evian, including the G8 Online team and colleagues from all G8 regions including Russia, mounted a full program for the Evian Summit itself. The team expanded its activities to include onsite transcription and translation of press conferences and interviews. It was supported by a home team of five analysts and management team members, under the direction of Michael Greenspoon, and included Antara Haldar, an intern from India. A full field team of six members, including four senior experts, was in place for the foreign ministers meeting in Paris.

G8 Media Assistance: The media assistance program, in the two months leading up to and through the Evian Summit, the Research Group assisted media organizations from around the world, including Canadian outlets in both official languages, on-site, as well as the many contacts on its media distribution list in the weeks leading up to the summit.

G8 Conferences and Seminars: The Research Group co-hosted a pre-Summit conference titled “Governing Globalization: G8, Public and Corporate Governance,” with the Research Group on Global Financial Governance, the Guido Carli Association, the G8 Research Group, the EnviReform Project, INSEAD, the Club of Athens, le Comité pour un Parlement Mondial, Futuribles and l’Académie de la Paix. The conference took place at INSEAD in Fontainebleau, France, on May 26, 2003. The papers presented at the conference, which was webcast live and received coverage in broadcast and print media, will form a new volume in the Global Finance book series. In addition, the 2002 EnviReform Conference, “Sustainability, Civil Society and International Governance,” involved several members of the G8 Research Group as well as an address by the Honourable Bill Graham, co-founder of the G8 Research Group.

G8 Speakers: A full slate of speakers visited the Research Group, including Patrick Cirillo from the International Monetary Fund, Matthew Hodges, formerly with the World Health Organization and the International Peace Academy’s David Malone. Robert Fauver, President Clinton’s Personal Representative to the Summit, spoke at an event co-hosted with the Asian Institute, followed by a dinner in his honour attended by several Canadian sherpas.

G8 Teaching: In addition to G8-related courses at the University of Toronto, Professor John Kirton offered an undergraduate course on the politics of global governance at the University of Siena, Italy, in August 2002. Professor Nicholas Bayne continued to teach his seminar on economic diplomacy, with much content on the G8, at the London School of Economics and Political Science (with Stephen Woolcock) and Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario.

Regional Offices: The G8 Research Group established regional offices in Moscow, under the leadership of Professor Victoria Panova, and in Mexico City, under the direction of Sabrina Shaw.

Professional Advisory Council: The Professional Advisory Council welcomed as a new member Dr. Kimon Valaskakis, president of the Global Governance Group–Club of Athens.

Robert H. Catherwood Scholarship: The 2002/03 Robert H. Catherwood Scholarships were awarded to Salimah Ebrahim and Oksana Werbowy. Fundraising for the Robert H. Catherwood Endowment Fund continued to bring new resources into this important endeavour.

Research: The G8 Research Group instituted interim compliance studies, issued at the end of the hosting year. New data sets and fact sheets were compiled, providing useful information on important dimensions of the summit process for researchers and interested citizens.

G8 Retreat: The G8 Research Group held its first retreat, thanks to the generosity of Maurice and Fred Strong at their country residence at Lost Lake, Ontario.

G8 Bulletin: The G8 Bulletin was published weekly for the first time on a year-round basis, under the editorship of Elizabeth Ben-Ishai. It is distributed to a subscriber list from around the world.

G8 Research Group Fundraising: A very successful annual Alumni Fundraising Appeal this year raised additional endowment funds to support its core infrastructure and student-related activities. Funds were also raised on a project-specific basis from the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade and private sector donors.

G8 Online 2003: G8 Online continued to be one of the most highly used online programs offered by the G8 Research Group. Over the year, new materials were added, including the Oral History and featured videos and interviews. A special interview with Susan Whelan, Canada’s Minister of International Co-operation, was produced. On-site activities at the Evian Summit, as at Kananaskis the year before, included reports on civil society, on-site interviews and daily diaries.

Conferences

Pre-Summit Conference, May 26, 2003
On May 26, 2003, the G8 Research Group co-hosted a pre-summit conference titled “Governing Globalization: G8, Public and Corporate Governance” with the Research Group on Global Financial Governance, the Guido Carli Association, the G8 Research Group, the EnviReform Project, INSEAD, the Club of Athens, le Comité pour un Parlement Mondial, Futuribles and l’Académie de la Paix. The conference took place at INSEAD in Fontainebleau, France, and was webcast live. It was well attended by members of the academic community, members of the press as well as participants from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and the Agence française du développement (despite a transportation strike). The luncheon address was given by a representative from President Jacques Chirac’s summit team. The papers presented at the conference will form a new volume in the Global Finance book series.

Financial and in-kind support for the conference came from Canada’s Department for Foreign Affairs, the Guido Carli Association, the G8 Research Group, the EnviReform Project and INSEAD, as well as from Beaubourg-République, who made the webcast possible.

EnviReform Conference, November 8, 2002
Members of the G8 Research Group participated in the third EnviReform conference on “Sustainability, Civil Society and International Governance: Local, North American and Global Perspectives,” on November 8, 2002, at the Munk Centre for International Studies. The conference was webcast live and videoconferenced with the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. For the concluding session on “The G8 and United Nations Systems,” John Kirton and Peter Hajnal prepared background papers, which were discussed in presentations by Désirée McGraw, Director of the Montreal Office, Christine Lucyk of LEAD Canada, Sheila Risbud of Environment Canada and Laurence Blandford of DFAIT. The keynote address was given by the Honourable Bill Graham, Canada’s foreign minister and co-founder of the G8 Research Group in his capacity as Director of the Centre of International Studies at the University of Toronto in 1987–88. The papers presented at the conference will be published in a volume in Ashgate’s Global Environmental Governance series.

G8 Governance

Under the editorship of Heidi K. Ullrich, the online G8 Governance series continued to attract a wide readership and to solicit submissions. Calls for papers were posted on the G8 Information Centre website and in university departments of the G8 Research Group’s network of academics. An announcement by the editor was made to post-graduate students at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

G8 Information Centre

Spanish-Language Website
In November 2002 the G8 Information Centre launched a Spanish-language feature, the first offered in a language other than the major language used in G8 members. This facility is aimed in the first instance at presenting Spanish-language translations, done by G8 Research Group members, of the leader’s level communiqués since 1975. This new project was done in recognition of the attendance of the Spanish prime minister at the 2002 Kananaskis Summit, the hosting of the 2004 Summit in the United States and the growing importance of the G7/G8’s work to Spanish-speaking members for the global community. This facility was launched and is being developed under the guidance of Daniella Aburto Valle, with assistance from Gail Martiri and others.

Russian-Language Website
Translation of official documents into Russian began under the direction of Professor Victoria Panova, in preparation for Russia’s first hosted summit in 2006. Original research in Russian will also be published as it becomes available.

Photo Gallery
One of the most popular sections of the G8 Information Centre, the photo gallery was expanded this year to include three categories: photos of the G8 Research Group at the summit, photos of the G8 leaders and officials at the summit, and G8-related events in between summits. Photos were collected from as many summits as possible, so that the gallery includes pictures from almost every year since the Toronto Summit in 1987.

[go to top]

G8 Research Collection

The G7/G8 Collection continued to expand, under the supervision of Professor Peter Hajnal, with materials collected from the foreign ministers meeting in Paris just before the Evian Summit as well as Evian-related materials. On-site document collection was overseen by Denisse Rudich These have been archived and the finding aid has also been updated accordingly.

G8 Research Group Summit Teams

Field Team
The G8 Research Group’s field team at Evian consisted of 22 people, including — for the first time — members from each of the G8 countries, as well as members from Mexico and Switzerland. In addition, the six-member field team at the foreign ministers meeting in Paris on May 23 included Pierre Marc Johnson. Senior experts at both G8 meetings wrote “Impressions” articles on the meetings, which were published on the G8 Information Centre website, as were their videotaped presentations.

With the rich linguistic abilities of this year’s team, the Research Group was able to produce written materials in all languages of the summit except Japanese. Activities expanded to include translation and transcriptions of news conferences and other texts, in addition to the usual research and documentation efforts and commitment counts.

See Appendix C for a full list of field team members for both meetings.

Home Team
Led by Michael Greenspoon, the home team included Kartick Kumar, Ryan Lavallee and Nick Roudev plus Antara Haldar, an intern from India. Together, they supported the work of the field team with real-time research around the clock during the summit, as well kept media archives, compiled G8 News and handled information requested.

See Appendix C for a full list of home team members.

G8 Media Assistance

The media assistance program, both onsite and in the leadup to the summit, assisted many media outlets from countries around the world, including Canadian outlets in both official languages. Onsite support at Evian included media organizations in many non-G8 countries, such as Algeria and the Netherlands, as well as editorials written for newspapers such as The Globe and Mail. Contact with the media were maintained throughout the year, through press releases to the ever-growing distribution list, kept up to date by Madeline Koch and Oana Dolea.

G8 Bulletin

In September 2002, the G8 Bulletin was launched as a weekly summary of the major events relating to the G7/8. Elizabeth Ben-Ishai served as editor, with the assistance of Carrie Fiorillo, Daniella Aburto Valle, Judah Harrison and Karma Dolkar, picking up on the Bulletins produced by Geoff Wallace and Paul Skippen during the Kananaskis Summit period. From September 2002 to May 2003, 30 regular editions were produced, plus a special Bulletin from the G8 development co-operation ministers meeting in Windsor. This proved one of the top-five most-used sections of the G8 Information Centre.

The G8 Bulletin is based on the G8 News, a daily compilation of news stories collected by Madeline Koch, with support from Oana Dolea.

[go to top]

Analytical Studies

In addition to the performance assessments and analysis produced for the 2003 Evian Summit, the G8 Research Group produced two compliance studies.

For the first time, an interim compliance report was published in January 2003, which assessed compliance with at the time of the handover of hosting responsibilities from Canada to France.

The final compliance report was issued in May 2003, with the summary results translated into French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish.

In addition, a detailed, systematic and qualitatively based analysis was produced for the paper “Producing International Commitments and Compliance without Legalization: G7/8 Performance from 1975 to 2002,” written by John Kirton and Ella Kokotsis, with research assistance by Nikolai Roudev and Michael Malleson, and presented at the annual International Studies Association conference in Portland, OR, in March 2003.

Presentations and Seminars

John Kirton made several presentations on the G8 over the course of the year, including a presentation to the Business Climate Deputies Committee of Ontario’s Ministry of Enterprise, Opportunity and Innovation in March. In March he also participated in a panel discussion with Kimon Valaskakis and Warren Allmond at McGill University, hosted by the Canadian Institute for International Affairs. He also gave a lecture to Professor Stephen Gallagher’s international affairs class at McGill University. In April, Professor Kirton presented a paper at a conference on the G8 sponsored by the Institute for Applied International Research in Moscow.

In the spring, Ella Kokotsis gave a special presentation to her colleagues at the Independent Market Operator on the G8 and the summit process. Dr Kokotsis co-presented “Producing International Commitments and Compliance without Legalization: G7/8 Performance from 1975 to 2002” with Professor Kirton at the International Studies Organization conference in Portland OR in March 2003.

Nicholas Bayne spoke on the G8 at the LSE International Relations Department’ s conference on Global Governance in November 2002. In December, he presented a paper to a panel chaired by Professor Robert Putnam at the annual conference of the British International Studies Association (BISA).

Fundraising

The annual Alumni Appeal repeated its success from the previous year, so that the G8 Research Group’s endowment was continued to grow to help insure the continuity, expansion and independence of the group’s programs.

[go to top]

G8 Research Group Members and Meetings

The Research Group met regularly throughout the year, led by Salimah Ebrahim and Bob Papanikolaou, with a focus on the preparation of its analytical studies.

[go to top]

G8 Online

In 2003, the G8 Online program both restructured the existing G8 Online material as well as produced new programming. The website was reorganized in two sections. The 2002 Kananaskis Summit section contained the archive of the entire 26-unit, bilingual G8 Online 2002 program and supporting materials for use by students, professors and others. This section still enjoys consistently high access numbers among G8 Online and G8 Research Group users.

The 2003 Evian Summit section contained a smaller scale version of the previous year’s program. While there was no new course syllabus for 2003, G8 Online was onsite at the Evian Summit covering the press conferences, in English and French, of the G8 member countries as well as of the expanded dialogue and civil society. New segments were produced with video coverage of the briefings, one-on-one student-led interviews, video assessments of the Summit by leading experts, student diaries, an interactive discussion forum, useful reference tools, and so on. G8 Online 2003 also featured an interview with the Honourable Susan Whelan, Canada’s Minister of International Co-operation, discussing Canada’s role in creating the new G8 Development Ministers forum and the work of Canada and the G8 on the Africa Action Plan.

G8 Online 2003 was supported by cash and in-kind donations from Sony Canada, Trinity College and the University of Toronto, eCollege.com, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council through the EnviReform project, and the Canadian International Development Agency.
